"The Underground Railroad in Illinois and the Nation"

Our May 13 program will be "The Underground Railroad in Illinois and the Nation" -- yet another fascinating freebie, thanks to the TiskHistSoc. Come on down!

NEW FEATURE: If you're unable to attend the program, you can join us virtually since we'll be LIVESTREAMING the event on our Tiskilwa Historical Society Facebook page. When the broadcast begins, you can click on the notification “Live” at the top of your newsfeed. If for some reason the bright red notice doesn't pop up, you may need to refresh the page.

Known for his ability to engage his audience, Muelder has delivered more than 250 lectures on the Underground Railroad to groups throughout the United States. Since 2004, he has served as director of the Galesburg Colony Underground Railroad Freedom Station at Knox College. His two books will be available for purchase following the presentation.

In conjunction with the event, Tiskilwa Public Library has set up a special display of several fiction and non-fiction books concerning the movement, and all are available for checkout.

Programs at Museum on Main are always free of charge and open to the public. Visitors are asked to enter the building at the left on the lower level. For those needing assistance, a chairlift is available to the upstairs community room. Presentations are followed by refreshments and social time in the museum galleries.
